The British “Inquiry” into Sharia Law initially shared Theresa May’s tolerance, but as Muslim women who are anti-Sharia join with MPs who are opposed to any non-British law in the country, it may gain a different flavor. article
I am often asked, regarding my views that religions that advocate killing non-believers should not be allowed, well what do you do about it? There seems to be a presumption that the only alternative is a Stalinesque purge. That is a position suggested by the Politically Correct (not!) globalists to scare you into thinking there is nothing you can do. It is useless to resist. Well, the Borg said that and Picard resisted them. So can we.
It has been done before. Muslims took over large parts of Europe, especially most of Spain, in the mid 700’s. They were rolled back gradually over centuries, and finally Isabella and Ferdinand united the two major kingdoms via their marriage, and financing Columbus was the least of their accomplishments.
The Catholic Inquisition, operating since the mid 1200’s, was not what you think. It did not burn witches. Since the late 700’s burning witches was illegal in Catholicism and itself a capital offense. Catholics weren’t supposed to believe in witches, and so burning someone for witchcraft was murder, pure and simple.
My friends, the purpose of the inquisition was to prevent sectarian violence, of which burning witches was one example. A few hundred years later it became abusive, but that is another problem. When I learned it’s true purpose in relation to the witch-burning, I was stunned at how inaccurate my education in history had been. What other lies have we been fed?
Ferdinand and Isabella wanted a peaceful, cooperative country. They asked first the Jews and then the Muslims to convert or leave. Then they got a special version of the inquisition approved by the Pope, the Spanish Inquisition, and they hired a converted Jew to head it, and determine if the converted congregations were secretly practicing their old ways. Very wise, as I’m sure he knew what to look for. Those found in violation were simply detained until they really converted or really left.
It worked. A few hundred years later, Spain again allowed Muslims to enter, but they have the most tolerant Muslim community in the world, which even tolerates intermarriage with non-Muslims.
The later abuses of the Spanish Inquisition, however, are a perfect example of the fact that once you start an “inquiry,” you rapidly lose control of it, as the British are finding out. The British Inquiry will become the British Inquisition and at the end of the day, they will have no Sharia Law in Britain. The various inquisitions of Europe eventually found their way to America and so will this one.
It is made inevitable by the Muslims themselves. They will not quit killing infidels until their scripture directing them to do that is erased. And it will make populations madder and madder until they do something. An “inquiry” is quite civilized compared to “Armageddon,” which some Evangelical Christians are advocating as the “final solution” to the “Muslim problem.”
Frankly, the Christian scriptures need to be purged of a few things too, Armageddon and the entire book of Revelation being high on my list of what needs to go (it was only marginally admitted at Nicea in the first place). How about a trade, Revelation for Killing of the Infidels? Political Christianity for Political Islam? (Without “political Islam” the impetus to export Sharia Law to other countries is considerably less.)
We already have LGBT marriage and recruiting (what do you think Gay Parades are about anyway?), which to me is, well, doesn’t need to be public, let’s put it that way. If we are going to take something from Islam, why not polygamy? It is very useful. Built-in child care as the wives take turns at it while the other one gets a break. The single spouse idea came from pagan Greeks and Romans, not from the Bible. God knows that it doesn’t work!
Anyway, back to the subject. Let’s start a movement to bring “The Inquiry” here. We probably can’t burn billions of electronic copies of the Koran, but artificially intelligent computers residing on the soon-to-be 5G network that wirelessly can download a movie in a couple of seconds will need something to burn their CPU cycles on. Why not monitoring the converts from traditional to tolerant Islam?
And don’t even mention religious freedom to me. I have never been free of religion. It is in my face everywhere I go, and I suck it up and tolerate the one I grew up with. I have no use for another one, especially if it has 92 verses saying to kill me. Get real, folks. And get rid of the 92 verses, and Revelation while you are at it. If that’s too difficult, just get rid of religion.
